Been flitting around this site since I took delivery of my divine 899 Panigale a month ago.
Still struggling to get miles on the bike. Shite weather and when it's nice I'm working. Up to 250 miles now. Termi's fitted this week. Sweet sound as I found out tonight. Just went for a 20 mile run.. It's damp and dark but I just needed a fix.
Don't really rate the headlight. Any views from anybody else?

Been riding for 41 years come May of this year. Only my second Ducati, the first was a Multistada 1200 back in 2010.
Also running a KTM Superduke R as well but it's pretty well a track bike now. Had an RC8R 2009 model which has been replaced by the Panigale. The Ducati seems so much more sophisticated than the KTM. I guess I will have to wait to see how they perform against each other. Panigale is a much nicer ride except, in common with the KTM the suspension is too had at the moment for my weight.
I'll try setting the sag when the spring has done a few more miles but I'm guessing it's going to be over sprung and might need a lighter spring or shock replacement.

Welcome to the forum, think you need to eat some pie's and drink some beer, that should sort out the spring problem! What colour did you go for?

No contest on Colour. The faster red version. :)
Not a beer man. Do like a pie or 2 but still stay skinny.
